How is it summer? I mean don’t get us wrong, we are excited, but didn’t it roll in so quickly? It literally feels like 2 minutes ago that we were buried in snow!
Anyway, now that summer is here and exams are over (for some of us!) we can finally sit back and enjoy life.
Here are the things we are LIVING for this summer!
Crazy Rich Asians
The top spot for the movie we are most excited to see this summer goes to Crazy Rich Asians. Based on the book of the same name (quick, read it now!), the story revolves around the grand wedding between Singapore’s most eligible bachelor, Colin Khoo, and a fashion icon, Araminta Lee which is billed as the wedding of the year. New Yorker Rachel gets thrown in at the deep-end when she travels to Singapore to meet her BF’s family who just happen to be crazy rich. As you can see from the trailer it just looks amazing. Be prepared to become obsessed with traveling to Singapore!
Crazy Rich Asians out August 15
We don’t know about you, but we have fatigue from all the superhero movies which suck-up time at the cinema. So, we are very excited to see an action-packed movie that doesn’t revolve in the Marvel universe. Ocean’s 8 looks like its going to be amazing (um, RIHANNA stars in it, so of course it’s automatically incredible!). If you haven’t seen the original movie with George Clooney, who is the brother of Sandra Bullock in the movie, get on it ASAP!
Ocean’ 8 is out June 18
Eve Of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher
We love us some YA here at missy.ie, but honestly it’s been a while since we’ve REALLY loved a new YA series. But that has all changed with the release of Eve Of Man. We were always going to give this a go because we are O.G McBusted fans and we just adore Giovanna Fletcher, but we were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed Eve Of Man. Eve is the first girl born in 50 years and as a result is solely responsible for the future of humanity. She always accepted her fate, until she meets Bram.
Eve Of Man is based on a simple and plausible concept; what if no more women were born? Eve Of Man really draws you in and leaves your mind blown by how it could easily happen. It’s great read that doesn’t get too bogged down in over-doing the dystopian angle, which some YA novels can fall prey to. If you’re looking for a great holiday read, this is the one. We are already anticipating book 2!
Summer and music seem to go hand-in-hand and we are totally okay with that. While there are lots of festivals and events on around the country over the next few months we are super excited about the arrival of Taylor Swift on our Isle! If you weren’t lucky enough to grab some tickets when they originally went on sale, fear not there are still some tickets available to see Taylor in Croke Park on the 15th of June.
Orange Is The New Black
We are totally ok with saying goodbye to our black-wares (until Autumn, that is) in favour of some summer brights. And we are particularly loving the colour orange which we have spotted in numerous summer collections. See some of our fav picks below.
The big news in the beauty world this summer is that Glossier has FINALLY arrived in Ireland. And we are excited! Usually Ireland is forgotten about when it comes to big beauty brands and it can take ages for it to become available here. But fun fact: we are part of a very exclusive club in having Glossier deliver to us. At the moment Glossier only ships to the U.S and the U.K. And now Ireland has joined that list! Special or what?? In terms of what to buy we did a review on Glossier back in November. Our number one pick is the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. Seriously, try it!
What are you looking forward to during the summer?
